Solitude is a beaded lace shawl designed with the joy of quiet time in mind. Sometimes there is nothing more enjoyable than curling up with some beautiful yarn and intricate, but not too complex, lace.

This is a crescent shaped shawl, with inbuilt shaping in the transition which gives a generous flare to the edging, and creates a longer shape with less depth, perfect for wrapping or elegant draping.

The edging uses a variation of a stitch pattern by Naomi Parkhurst of Gannet Designs, based on the word Solitude, and is perfect for a big night in, hiding at home with some yarn. Or a special night out, looking glamorous and serene, if your cup of solitude happens to be full. :)

  • Optional beading adds a subtle sparkle to the lace.

  • Both the body pattern and the edging lace sections are repeatable, allowing the shawl to be adapted to a range of yardages.

  • Suits lace to fingering weight yarn.

  • Can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from charts with notes.
